Five teams of directors and producers will pitch their projects to a live jury in hopes of winning $50,000 to make their short film. That film will screen at the Calgary International Film Festival in 2017. The live pitch will take place on October 1, 2016. RSVP for this free event here.
Congratulations to AMPIA Members Michael Peterson and Eva Colmers who were selected as part of the top finalists!
